Back to part 1 Toon Zone: Alright, FUNimation’s been one of Toonami’s greatest partners over the years, with Dragonball and Yu-Yu Hakusho. They’re currently doing Tenchi Muyo GXP and the new episodes of Tenchi Muyo. Was Tenchi enough of a success that you might pick these shows up? Sean Akins: It’ll depend. We’ll certainly have […]

"Gundam F91" Misfires Too Often

It’s a bad time to be a Universal Century fan. Your original series bombed on television, your movie had several questionable dub errors, and your most-requested title had more delays than the average Nintendo 64 video game.

"Gargoyles" Awaken on DVD, Looking All The Better For Their Age

Back in the day, Gargoyles was one of the few cartoons on the air that attempted to break its genre’s formula.

Much in the style (almost exactly, in fact) of Nagai’s Devilman, Ryo Utsugi has the ability to transform into […]

"Stellvia: Foundation 1": High-Grade Sci-Fi Anime For All Ages

Many anime deal with school life and mecha/space/spacemecha pilots, though not always in the same series. When they both show up, and they are explicitly connected, the result ranges from excellent and powerful (such as the often over-looked Twin Spica) to painfully horrific (Pilot Candidate, I’m looking in your direction). Geneon’s new title in this […]

Orange Islands Offer Up Different View of "Pokémon"

So, what do you do when you have an anime based off a wildly popular video game, but the next installment is over a year away? Why, you create a filler saga, of course! So went the thought process of the Pokemon creative staff as they went to work trying to create a workable saga […]
